Will Smith And The "Slap Seen Around The World" - Breaking It Down: A Very Strange Oscars

The 2022 Oscars A situation that is so outrageously manufactured must be real, right? It seems that it might.

As the front-runner for Best Actor, Will Smith was having the Oscars of his life until he started having dreadful, horrible, no good, very bad Oscars, and then he went right back to enjoying the best Oscars ever. He was both the hero and the villain of the 94th Academy Awards, held in Los Angeles, in a tale that could easily have been a movie storyline. The gist: After slapping Chris Rock over a joke about his wife Jada, Will went on to win an Oscar. The details of Slapgate, or "the slap saw around the world," as it has come to be known on social media, are provided in the long version below.

You should be aware that Jada Pinkett has alopecia, a disorder that results in hair loss, which is why she wears her hair almost completely shaved off her scalp. Jada disclosed she has alopecia in 2018 and has called it "terrifying" to live with.

Perhaps, the host, Chris Rock was unaware that Jada's bald head is not an appearance she chose, or perhaps he was aware and chose to make light of it. He joked, "Jada, can't wait for GI Jane 2," referring to the 1990 movie in which Demi Moore played a female Navy SEAL and had her hair closely cropped, asSEALs do.

Will appeared to be laughing at first, which caused Jada to roll her eyes. When the camera, which was on the Smiths, turned back to Chris, it showed Will charging up to Chris Rock and decking him in front of a live audience watching from all around the world. Will exclaimed as he walked back to his seat, "Keep my wife's name out of your f*****g mouth!"

A situation that is so outrageously contrived could not possibly be real, could it? It seems that it might. Chris Rock said, "Will Smith slapped the s**t out of me," but he remained composed and continued. The reactions of the star-studded audience proved that this was not a staged skit.

Will Smith won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of King Richard moments later, as was predicted. When Denzel Washington, another Best Actor nominee, offered Will some kind of advice after the commercial break, it appeared that common reason had won the day by that point. "I'd want to express my regret to the Academy. Will made a point of omitting Chris Rock from his apology to his fellow nominees in his remarks.

I resemble the mad father, as they described Richard Williams as being. But love will drive you crazy," an emotional Will said before sharing what Denzel had said to him: Thank you, Denzel, for the advice you gave me a short while ago, according to which "the devil comes for you at your highest moment."

Slapgate is taking up characters' and minds' space on social media. Both the slapper, Will Smith, and the slope, Chris Rock, have been accused of being at fault. Here are two Hollywood reply tweets that each criticize one party:

Of course, the Smiths are closed rank. Jaden Smith, the son of Will and Jada Smith, tweeted while attending the Oscars, "And that's how we do it."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences stated in a succinct tweet that it does not "condone violence of any sort." Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Police Department reported that Chris Rock had decided against making a police complaint.

Following his Best Actor victory, Will Smith posed for photos with his family. Later, he was observed having a good time at the Vanity Fair post-Awards party as if Slapgate never happened.

Will Smith, who is only the sixth African-American to win an Academy Award for Best Actor after Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx, and Forest Whitaker, would not have been nearly as significant had Slapgate not actually occurred.
